Professional Development Event – Birding and Flower recognition for the Guide in all of us – June 2nd, 2022

Join acclaimed naturalist and bird/flower guru Miles Tindal for a hike designed to help guides I.D. birds and flowers. During this Professional Development Event you will learn how to recognize the most prominent birds we all come across on our hikes via their calls and by identifying the habitat they live in. You will also learn how to use visual tools of flower I.D. in the different habitats we will walk through. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain a foundation of bird/flower knowledge, build on what you have or brush up on a difficult skill set to master!

Miles started as a keen birder and naturalist growing up in the UK, and since then has watched and photographed birds in all the continents of the world. He has worked as a naturalist/ornithologist/guide aboard cruise ships in arctic and antarctic environments and participates in a range of local research activities including bird banding projects and breeding bird surveys. He has spend many summers trail running in the Rockies and has become very familiar with the bird life that can be seen and heard on our local mountain trails. Some of Miles’ bird photography can be seen at Miles currently works in environmental risk assessment.
